Ambient Bamboo, a provider of durable, precision-
engineered bamboo flooring has received accolades from the Retul bike company,
showing it can stand up against the a harsh retail bicycle environment.
“Our experience with the material shows that it has done
a great job withstanding the retail bicycle fitting studio environment,” said
Founder of Rutul bike shop, Cliff Simms. “This includes consistent hard shoes
and cleats on the bamboo as well as bicycle lube and dirt.”
Ambient Bamboo has found that many retail shops find Ambient Bamboo flooring an appealing
option because of its eco-friendly characteristics, durability, renewability
and easy maintenance. The cost of bamboo
flooring is also cheaper per square foot than oak, maple, American cherry and
many other types of hardwood floors.
“Not only are
Bamboo floors great for kitchens, bathrooms and homes we’re seeing that a lot
of companies are finding the durability of the product very appealing,” said Ambient
Bamboo personnel manager Will Latta. “The thing with bamboo floors are that
they will really hold up to big machinery, hard soled- shoes and other products
that will ruin a hardwood floor easily.”
Bamboo’s eco-friendly characteristics were recently
featured in Natural Home and Garden’s featured story about “A Healthier Home:
Furnishings and Décor to Reduce Indoor Air Pollution.” Because bamboo is a
grass and not a tree, it is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. On
average, bamboo takes 59 days to regenerate after harvesting. Bamboo products
are also extremely long-lasting which is fundamental
the overall sustainability of a product.
“A bamboo forest creates
30% more oxygen to begin with than a hardwood forest of the same size,” Latta
said. “Bamboo's root systems are left intact at harvest time, eliminating soil
runoff concerns and the need for time-consuming replanting, both of which are
unavoidable in conventional lumber harvesting.”
Ambient Bamboo keeps sustainability in mind with
everything they do and is happy to offer bamboo wood flooring and accessories
that enable clients to do the same.
